Event Description

Young authors based out of Garner Magnet High School will be reading memoirs, poems, letters, vignettes, and essays from their book, The Roots of Our People: From One World to Another, Juntos. These young authors of Juntos NC, published their bilingual book in May of 2018 to illustrate their roots of "where they're from," explore the dualities of their identities, and demonstrate the strength of the Latino community.  In resounding individual and collective voices, these authors describe how they embrace the roots of their people while they pursue higher education, advance new opportunities, and advocate for the immigrant community in America. 

Copies of the book will be available for purchase on-site.
